Governor Greg Abbott’s May 18 announcement was about Phase 2 openings, homelessness prevention measures and more. Find timelines, guidance and checklists for businesses and customers on the Open Texas Strike Force website.

In the next 10 days, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will take over all COVID-19 labs and new cases. Collin County will continue to report what they receive until the DSHS system and definitions are in place.

To help prevent homelessness, the City of Plano is offering limited rent and utility assistance. Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the City’s Homelessness Prevention Program has been temporarily expanded to assist with hotel payments for qualified applicants. The program offers three kinds of assistance:

  • Interim COVID-19 Hotel Assistance – At Risk of Homelessness 
    Assistance for people living in a Plano hotel
  • Interim COVID-19 Hotel Assistance – People Experiencing Homelessness 
    Assistance for people unsheltered in Plano
  • Rent and Mortgage Assistance – At Risk of Homelessness 
    Assistance for Plano residents with a lease agreement or mortgage who have received a late notice or notice to vacate
    NOTE: Get eligibility and application instructions.

The Collin Cares recovery plan provides funding for several items, including COVID-19 testing. Uninsured Collin County residents receive free COVID-19 testing and physical evaluations.

For the insured and underinsured, the U.S. Congress has waived deductibles for COVID-19 testing. Contact your insurance provider for more information.
